Welcome to our old farmhouse. Over the past year I have learned so much history of this house and the people who lived here. Ninety six years of love, loss, hopes and dreams. Preservation continues and there is always a repair to be done. We are trying to be purest in our preservation as much as we possibly can. I hope you follow along and each week I will try to give you a little history of the house as well as the first owners of the house. I've been lucky enough to find a journal from a Granddaughter who talks about the house as well as her Grandparents. So come follow along and learn about this old house as well as the occupants, old and new.

A Dollar Store Table

 One last winter tablescape before I go into Valentines Day, and this one is from the Dollar Stores.
I used dried hydrangea from the garden as my center piece, with four battery operated candles I bought a couple of years ago at Wal Mart  after Christmas clearance. The table cloth is from an estate sale and the rest from Dollar General, Dollar General Market and Family Dollar.

 I found the cute little red mugs at the Dollar General Store just before Thanksgiving, great buy at $1.00 apiece and they only had four. The napkin rings were after Christmas clearance a couple of years ago, Dollar General and the napkins are dish clothes that pick up the green from the table cloth and plates beautifully, they were two for a dollar.

The plates I got last week at Dollar General Market, clearance sixty cents each. The flatware a Family Dollar find and I'm sure everyone has seen them there.

So I hope you enjoyed my little thrown together Dollar Store tablescape. I think this would just work great for a simple Holiday breakfast or light lunch. I think it also shows you don't have to spend allot to set a pretty table.
